It’s no secret that downtown Cheyenne is a hub of excitement. With a high concentration of shops, restaurants, and attractions, it’s a great way to spend a day. However, it can be easy to forget about all of the wonderful things the rest of Cheyenne has to offer! Here is a list of just a few fun restaurants, stores, and things to do around Cheyenne that are outside of the downtown area!


Pour Decisions Bar & Grill:

Open since 2021, Pour Decisions has been a local favorite from day one. From personal experience, I can truly say I’ve never had a meal there that didn’t leave me satisfied, with every menu item hitting the spot! They have one of the best Prime Rib dinners in town (in my opinion, anyway), but their Pork Ribeye, burgers, salads, and Grilled Teriyaki Salmon are all standouts on the menu! Plus, with all burgers and entrees, you get a free scoop of ice cream, and really, what more could you ask for?

Brown & Gold Store:

The Brown & Gold store has been a staple store in Cheyenne since it opened in 1995. If you're in search of University of Wyoming apparel or Wyoming-themed merchandise, this is your one-stop shop. In 2003, Wyoming proposed to make the state colors Brown & Gold in honor of the University of Wyoming Cowboys football uniforms. While, sadly, the motion failed, Brown & Gold are still the unofficial colors of Wyoming, and this store is your ultimate destination for showing your Wyoming pride.

Messenger’s Old West Museum:

Messenger’s Old West Museum is a museum that is off the beaten path but worth the visit. When you walk through the doors, you’ll step back in time. Explore the old west with displays of carriages, saddles, quilts, cars, sleighs, guns, and wildlife mounts. You'll also learn about the history of Cheyenne and the surrounding area! This museum has grown in the past few years and is a must-see for history lovers!

Frontier Mall:

For a comprehensive shopping experience, look no further than the Frontier Mall. You can find unique eateries like Honolulu Poke and Ramen, and Forge Café, as well as shops like Sweetwraps Western Gifts, and All Wild and Western. There are many more retail stores and places to eat, but there are also fun things to do like visit Bumpers Arcade to play some arcade games, or, on the weekend you can check out the impressive Sherman Hill Model Railroad Club display! There is something for everyone at the Frontier Mall!

Durbar Nepalese and Indian Bistro:

Durbar is a Nepalese & Indian Bistro located on the east side of Cheyenne. This establishment offers an array of authentic dishes prepared by their in-house chef, blending fresh ground herbs and spices sourced from Nepal and India. With a diverse menu, including numerous vegetarian options, a meal at Durbar is an unforgettable journey through exotic flavors and culinary craftsmanship!
